PCV Question.. AND YES I SEARCHED!! :)
« on: March 13, 2013, 05:53:17 pm »
So I can't really find a solid answer on where to ground the PCV at. I've read that the bolt for the reservoir was not good. Can I just ground it to the battery? It should be here on Friday and want to install it. My bike is a 2012 C14 that is stock except I pulled the flies. I can't wait to feel the results.

I ground mine in 2 places. One bolt to the frame, and ran another wire from there to the battery. Been 3 years without a hiccup, or corrosion forming at the connections.

I am one of the lucky few I reckon that has had no issues using the reservoir bolt since 2008.  Some 52,000 miles, so it must not be that bad ;)

The current will follow the shortest path back to the battery anyway, so yes you can ground to the battery.

I used the accessory leads in the boot on the left side of the dash.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.
